Is anyone else exhausted? Awards season really messes with my sleep. And this year was a “perfect storm” for losing sleep. Not only did they announce the Caldecott, the Newbery, and the Printz awards…but the night before was the Golden Globes. (The lame Golden Globes. No beautiful dresses and no Hottie McHotties to look at. Waaahhhhh!)
I was also exhausted from converting the time change to figure out what time I’d have to wake up to listen to the live broadcast of the ALA announcements. Let’s see, they’re announcing at 7:45 a.m. eastern time, so if I add three hours…no, subtract three hours…then add fifteen minutes in order to brew a pot of coffee…no, subtract fifteen minutes! Doh!
So I slept in.
Mainly, I was so tired from screaming at my television all night when anything other than Weeds or 30 Rock won a Golden Globe. I love Tina Fey (at least she won best actress!) and I love Mary-Louise Parker (she was amazing in Angels in America…and, of course, Fried Green Tomatoes).
So hopefully no children’s book awards will be announced in February when the Oscars roll around. But please, Hollywood, I’m begging…don’t cancel the Oscars. We need some Hottie McHotties to look at this time!!
